August 4           Bad JuJu

Bad JuJu is a Delaware Blues band that is all about good old fashioned, shoot-from-the-hip blues, rhythm, blues and soul! Much of what we put out there for you may be on a list, but is not really scripted. I doubt that it will ever happen the same way twice, and that is what keeps it interesting, energized and full of vibe! We hope that you enjoy what you hear and can get lost in the music just enough to forget the day-to-day things that sometimes get in the way. We are Bad JuJu!
